Paint New Zealand Beautiful
Keep New Zealand Beautiful are excited to announce the launch of the Paint New Zealand Beautiful programmes for 2018! Research has shown that murals and street art reduce antisocial behaviour such as littering and graffiti, along with increasing community pride and making our communities feel safer. Do The Right Thing and help us Paint New Zealand Beautiful!
Thanks to our generous Paint New Zealand Beautiful sponsor Resene, we are able to offer several opportunities for you to get involved. Check out our programmes below and click on the thumbnails for more information!
Nature Murals Competition
Nature Murals, brought to you by Resene, offers local artists the opportunity to get their art in the public arena! Artists are invited to identify a blank wall that could do with beautification, and create a design that incorporates an existing element of nature around the wall. Winning submissions will receive a $1000 grant and all the materials required to paint the mural. In addition, all expressions of interest received before 31st January 2018 will go in the draw to win a Wacom Creative Pen Tablet! Click here for more information and to register your interest!
Wall Worthy Competition
Wall Worthy, proudly sponsored by Resene, gives local schools, early childhood centres and youth groups the chance to tell their local history, celebrate a local celebrity or communicate a nature or conservation theme on a wall in their grounds. Winning submissions will receive all the materials required to paint their mural. Schools who register their interest before 31st January 2018 will also go in the draw to win a $1000 grant towards a sustainability or conservation programme in their school!
